that this is all bogus science? who -- are they phonies? are they quacks? >> there are different motivations. some people don't want to hear about global warming because it's bad news and there's enough bad news in the world and everybody has plenty to worry about anyway. some people don't want to hear about it because it gets in the way of their economic interests, those would be the fossil fuel companies, for instance. and some people are just generally skeptical and don't like experts, and, frankly, i don't like experts all the time myself either. but these are the facts. every academy of science of every major country in the world has said this is happening. it's happening now. it's only going to get worse until we start taking actions to stem the emissions that are causing the problem. but in the meantime, this stuff is going to be happening even if we get emissions under control for some time, for decades, so we have to learn how to adapt better, how to prepare for such a potential disaster, how to mitigate their damages. >> we don't have any high ground to go to in this where we have 6 bill
happened here, where so many experts in the field of environmental science have suggested that what is happening with these severe weather systems is becoming more frequent, as a result of climate change? >> well, martin, governor romney hasn't said a whole lot about a lot of things recently. you know, folks asked him 14 times yesterday, whether he was going to -- whether he wanted to get rid of fema. the last thing he heard or the last thing i remember hearing from governor romney on climate change was, he was questioning the science of climate change. and this is the same person who, when he was governor the first two years, was one of the leaders of reggie, the state consortium of governors, who wanted to do something about greenhouse gas emissions. two years later, he pulls out of it, as he was ramping up his run for president, the first run for president in 2008. so i think, you just -- he's been on every side of this issue, so the latest incarnation is that governor romney has questioned the science behind climate change. >> but also, john, i remember mr. romney's speech at th

"one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics." this endorsement criticized mitt romney's leadership on the other hand saying, "in the past mr. romney has also taken sensible positions, but he has reversed course on all of them and is even running against the health care model he signed into law in massachusetts." mike bloomberg criticizes mr. romney specifically for flip-flopping and dropping his previous positions on climate change then says, "this issue is too important. we need determined leadership at the national level." in other words, i don't think we're going to get determined leadership from mitt romney. i think he has taken occasionally attractive positions, but leadership, no. speaking to you from new york city, this storm and its aftermath, this externality to the big election i

-- the national academy of sciences, the journal, proceedings of the national academy of sciences took a survey of scientists who work on this a couple of years ago, and there was agreement among 97% of scientists that fossil fuel emissions from human activity lead to global warming. are warming the atmosphere. that's an incredibly high consensus. so it's 97% in agreement. 3% in disagreement. at this consensus. at this point the scientific consensus is very, very strong that burning coal and oil and fossil fuels is warming the planet and leading to these extreme weather situations. >> so, this question really, then, is directed to the 3% of scientists as we look at the latest cover of "business week" it speaks for itself, coral, we had new york city mayor michael bloomberg endorsing the president in a piece largely focused on climate change. is this a wake-up call and could it end the debate? >> the problem is you can't ever say any one specific weather event is caused by climate change but you can look at the growing stack of reports saying we know we're going to see more of this. the national

science, junk science in universities and these think tanks that is the moral justification for these harsh restrictive conservative policies which take away corporate accountability, which privatize our schools. that's one of their massive endeavors is the privatization of private schools. they've moved now into funding organizations about propaganda to say there's massive voter fraud and justify the activities in polling places on election days. that includes, melissa, a contribution to true the vote which ended up being returned because true the vote didn't have its 501(c)(3) status, but true the vote and organizations that are working with true the vote. hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars to organizations working with true the vote to put a million poll workers in election precincts on election day. >> i want to bring in valerie quickly because she's been making the point about on voting day it should be that every vote counts the same. if it's not advertising, if they're putting voter suppression action in the field, that strikes me as particularly troubling.

't get voters out and there's the human element. are they relying too much on science and not enough on shoe leather? >> absolutely not. one of the hallmarks of the 2008 campaign was the ground game, people on the ground, been in neighborhoods, communities, talking to people and able to go back and flock on doors and get people out to vote that ground game still exists. at the same time what we've also always said is that this is a close election. this isn't a surprise to anyone. i think we're all waiting for next tuesday and at the same time, the campaign is confident about what's going to happen next. part of the confidence, i believe, comes from the early voting. and what we've seen. ohio, you mentioned ohio, reality is that since the early voting began, there have been nine polls out there, and all of those polls show that the president's leading in early voting. that's the momentum we're taking into the election day. it's going to be close. but at the same time we believe that we have the infrastructure in place to do it, and beyond that, we believe the american people have a re

, mitt romney doesn't say a word because in conservative crowds the science of climate change is just too controversial. climate change is something that you can just heckle right on out of the room. it's not connected to floods or fires or devastation we saw this week or the millions of americans left stranded homeless or without power. it's just the republican way. it's just something to laugh off, you know? >>> tonight in our survey, i asked who do you trust to work with the other side? 98% of you said president obama. 2% of you say mitt romney. >>> up next, hurricane sandy forced two major new york city hospitals to evacuate. and the process to get patients out wasn't easy. tonight, we're going to be talking to a hero nurse who worked almost 24 hours straight to save lives. stay tuned. >>> it seems as though it's like a blur because i think this aftermath of the cleanup and looking at what i'm looking at now, which looks like what i'm told would be a war zone. i've never experienced a war. i think i'm in survival mode. >> monday night was probably the most terrifying night of my life,

political science data saying women tend to do better when a democrat is in office on all of these things. are the democrats making the argument they need to make to these broad group of women? >> republicans had a very specific strategy this year which is try to force white voters, including married white women, to really choose more than ethnicity and more their class and not pay attention to issues that would be considered women's issues. but what i think is interesting is how few republican women have been out front. you showed all those clips. very few republican women, including white republican women, had been willing to do the vanguard for these issues about gender. specifically about women. and they haven't been able to sort of create a coalition of republican women who will argue this. i think they're even offended by it. the republicans have been successful at least in cleving off a certain percentage of married women. but i question whether or not those polls are going to be sort of played out on election day the same way. i think a lot of women privately, including republican
